I get the impression that if Nintendo had an account system that tied into these different services on the 3DS, they could've just banned those that sent inappropriate images rather than just take the entire service down.

People use swapnote? Feels like one of the more useless things on my 3DS, oh well, I suppose I'm not a fan of taking things away. Maybe they'll surprise us with something better in the near-future.

Dragon Quest Monsters 2 LE 3DS XL

Thank god this isn't coming out till February, with these new consoles coming out I already have plenty of money going elsewhere. I'm a HUGE Dragon Quest Monsters fan, so it will be my utmost goal to get my hands on this. And I'm still holding out hope that the DQM2 remake will get localized here. Or hell, even localizing the remake they did of the original DQM would get me excited.

I would like to see any kind of DQ game localized for the 3DS in the USA, it will probably happen eventually.

Swung by a McDonald's last night, got 4 hits via the relay. All had Pokemon X or Y as the last game played, and none gave a hit for the game itself.

 

Gotta love that.

I miss Dragon Warrior.  Nothing more fun than trying to score Edrick's armor as a level 2 warrior. Stupid Golem.  It still haunts some of my nightmares :-)  That's character design.  A sprite that bugs you in your sleep more than 20 years after you played the game.

To be fair, of all the games I have, I think the only one with lamer streetpass rewards is Super Street Fighter IV, and really it's kind of a toss-up.

Uh SSF was the fighters correct? I think Kid Icarus gave stuff for SP hits as well.  I thought they were fairly useless.

 

I've owned pretty much EVERY 3DS game and now you've got me thinking about it...

I have a blast with Street Fighter streetpass and spent more time than the main game.  I build up a pretty strong team and only lost once.

That's cause those of us at launch were the rare few.  The title had outlived it's playability by time they did the price drop and more people bought into the 3DS.

I only got rid of it a month ago. Had it probably since launch. Still never got a single pass for it, even doing HomePass.

I'm considering getting a 3DS XL on Black Friday. Is there anything I need to know? I have a 3DS with Ambassador stuff (not that I play any of it...). I think I heard somewhere that all your Streetpass people don't transfer? Is that true? Is there anything that doesn't transfer? Swapnotes? I've got all those Streetpass games, and I sure don't want to lose my progress or hats.

Yeah, I did the system transfer from my 3ds to my 3ds xl, and after the system transfer I moved the SD card to the xl, and everything was there. :)

DSi games are copied from system memory on the old 3ds to the SD card and back into the system memory on the new 3ds.

Are there any good black Friday deals worth mentioning? Toys r Us has a nice $20 off regular 3DS but that's all i can find, GameStop doesn't have anything similar. I'm looking to get an XL on BL, But the lack of deals is discouraging.

Thanks, looks like I'm going to try this one out. Now it's time to worry if I'll be too slow to get it.

Anybody that likes classic platformers should check out VVVVVVon the eShop. I beat it the other day and enjoyed it for the 3-4 hours that the main campaign lasts, though you unlock several more campaigns after that point that offer new challenges if you want more.

Thanks everyone for letting me know that everything will transfer if I get an XL. For some reason, I had thought I heard some things didn't transfer.

 

Does anyone have any regrets? Wish they hadn't paid the difference for XL? Or think it's not really a huge improvement?

I paid over $300 for my XL (bought the Pikachu one months after it was no longer being sold in stores). Don't regret it at all.

Just standard gripes...

 

The audio is a bit worse

SOME games can look a bit more pixel-y.  (personal preference)

It's bigger

 

My pros:

Bigger, so it fits an adults hands

Bigger screens, better to view stuff (no more squinting)

Bigger screens also don't hurt my eyes nearly as much with the 3D effect on\

 

 

I can't imagine Kid Icarus on this thing but I LOVE it.  And I imported the CPP so I could play Monster Hunter on it.

Nintendo sells the Circle Pad Pro XL via their online store @ http://store.nintendo.com, so no importing necessary.

Now... not before.  And NOT in time for the Monster Hunter launch.  It was a couple months after the launch than NoA/Reggie got off their haunches and brought it over.

So my 3DS is pretty much busted. Too many hard throws from a 23 month old. Bottom screen only displays a black screen and two lines.

 

I thought I was being smart by buying the extended warranty from Target, because I knew the kids would likely break it.

However, since it's only been 6 months it's still covered under the manufactures warranty. (According to Target Extended Service)

 

So next i call an 1-800 #. How effective will this be?  Will they quickly replace my :3ds: will it matter that it broke due to a drop or fall?
